Topics of Interest

​Kailin Kroetz’s research focuses on policy questions related to coupled natural-human systems in marine and terrestrial ecosystems. A significant portion of her research relates to the design and evaluation of programs used to manage fisheries. Current work explores the trade-offs of incorporating multiple objectives (social, cultural, and economic) into the design of tradable permit programs in the United States and in developing countries. Additional research examines land use choices and the implications for endangered species and biodiversity protection. For example, past work looks at how broadening the set of policy options considered when conducting conservation planning can impact the efficient use of limited conservation funds.
